“Could not find a better budget hotel in florence”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Had a triple room at the hotel Dali for one night in february 2012. Could not fault it in any way, the staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the location superb. Could not recommend this hotel highly enough for anyone looking for a budget hotel in the heart of Florence

We were worried about the communal bathroom but were pleasantly satisfied as they were immaculately clean, shower big and good hot water pressure..the bathroom next to the lobby was at times embarassing to go to in pjs though!

Rooms were nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and a small sink. The doors were thin so we could hear everyone jingling there keys to unlock doors while getting out to go to the bathroom..our room was near the lobby so sometimes we could hear all the people talking before they left. If you are a deep sleeper it will be no problem!

The fantastic thing about this hotel is the great location, freedom for coming and going whenever you please, free parking, and excellent prices! I highly recommend this place also for the friendly and helpful staff! The owner, marco was extremely helpful and accomodating too.

We stayed at the Hotel Dali for 3 nights as part of a 10 day trip of Italy. The location was excellent and the room temperature was fine. If you want basic this is exactly what you get. expect to pay cash for the room (Have exact change). The power went out a few times at night so if you have something plugged as an alarm clock make sure that it runs on batteries. The staff was nice and friendly, We found that we prefer something a little more comfortable after long days of touring. The bathroom was small, room was a reasonable size.

Room Tip: Basic, a private room and and bath.

Stayed here for 2 nights on my 3 weeks europe trip. coming from singapore, i do not expect much from the hotel even though reviews have been great & recommended by Rick Steves. I am welcomed by Marco.. super nice & friendly with all sort of tips & recommendations.. The room is very comfortable & pleasant & very clean. They just renovated the place with a fresh coat of light yellow paint & add a 2nd toilet / shower room. This place is 10 mins walk to everywhere... i had lots of wrong turn during my stay here & love losing myself and soak in the great florence atmosphere.. i spent zero dollars on transportation.. not because i am cheap.. because florence & hotel dali is that accessible.. even walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella Train Station.. just behind the iconic Duomo.. lots of shopping to be done & great & cheap food available around. i will definitely stay here again. Thanks Marco, Rick Steves & the numerous fantastic reviewers! Ciao!!

Room Tip: just ask Marco... he will handle it.. :)

The apartment option from Hotel Dali was a great choice for my vacation in Florence. Marco of Hotel Dali offered the apt as a long-term accommodation for me and my travelling companion. The facilities were well-equipped and we loved the autonomy. We could come and go as we pleased and yet we were in communication with Marco at the Hotel whenever we needed to be, since the Hotel Dali was a 5 minute walk from our apt. Wi-fi was available at the Hotel only; however, even standing outside on the street with the view of the Duomo in the background, I could always access the internet. Marco was very helpful when we were booking daytrips around Tuscany. In all, Marco's pleasant manner just added to the fantastic holiday in Florence.

My family and I (2 adults and 2 children aged 8) stayed at the Hotel Dali in November 2011 for 3 nights. We were very happy with the accommodations. Hotel Dali is a great location for seeing all the sights in Florence and is walking distance to the train station.

Traveling to Italy with 4 persons can be cumbersome. Most hotels have maximum occupancy per room. Finding a Quad room can be difficulty and expensive. Marco and Samantha, however, have a great family room. It was basic and clean. The room had 1 queen size bed with two single beds on each side of it. Out the window, was a small courtyard with pretty buildings and pomegranate trees. The bathroom was quite small, but adequate. The hotel has free Wi-Fi.

The main attributes of the Hotel Dali are the location and the helpful staff. Marco, Samantha and all the night staff were very accommodating. Marco can help you with restaurant, sightseeing, and gelato recommendations. He is a wonderful host. Marco made our reservations to the Uffizi and the Accademia museum. He will even make you a quick espresso before heading out in the morning.

Of course the location makes the place…the Duomo is 2 blocks away. Ponte Vecchio 5-10 minutes away. Michelangelo plaza 20 minutes walk. The train station is a 15-minute walk (even our 8 year olds could pull their own suitcases from the station without any complaints---you can, too!). We made a day trip to cinque terre with ease. The area is full of cafes/restaurants and there are multiple super markets about 5-10 minutes walk.

Overall, we would highly recommend it to travelers looking for a clean, no frills hotel, to explore Florence. Thanks Marco!
